Episode 53 - Peyton Place by Grace Metalious (with special guest!)

Today we have a special treat for you - we got Henry from FireStarters   to read Grace Metalious' Peyton Place  with us and let me tell you... it's a real Peyton Place in there. I honestly can't even describe the plot of this book so let me just give you the trigger warnings, I guess?  So this book is trying really hard to shock you, which shouldn't shock you - the stuff that isn't  intentional in it, therefore, is... more shocking?  So on that front look out for rampant 1950's racism that thinks it's progressive including whoa  n-word count and awful depictions of mental illness, including a character who dies by suicide.  The stuff you're here for, though - the Peyton Place  stuff - includes but probably is not limited to because my god: incestuous rape and abuse, secret illegal abortion(s), an industrial carnival accident, a cat strangled in absolutely bizarre circumstances (I mean seriously usually I'm the one freaked out by animal cruelty but t

We love you please give us money.

We love you so much - you're the most amazing fans and also the most attractive and you have the best taste in clothes!  Are those new shoes?  Did you do something to your hair?  We love your hair.

Oh in related news we really need money to pay for hosting and shitty romance novels and I mean it's not like we drink expensive wine but we're librarians okay it's not like we went to med school and Morganelli's needs to keep the lights on sooooo we made a Patreon.  Consider this our NPR Pledge Drive Season.

Come get cool stuff!  With just a dollar a month, you can get us to shout out to you anything you like!  We will wish a happy birthday!  We will propose to somebody (on your behalf, we are both already married)!  We will tell off your childhood birthday-party-crashing rival!  We don't even care!

If you pledge just five dollars a month we will send you a cool sticker that we will absolutely have designed by the time we need it!  It'll be a design we never sell anywhere else.  We'll also send you a handwritten thank you note because we were raised right.  And some business cards to hand out to your friends and relations.

If you give us twenty five dollars a month you get all that PLUS a tote bag!  Again, we'll come up with a design that'll a) be a surprise and b) will never be sold anywhere else.  Exclusive!  A club!  We love clubs!  Secret membership clubs!

If you give us fifty goddamned American dollars a month, we will let you pick a book for us to read.  We will do an entire episode on it.  We will suffer for our art.  (Plus you get all the rest of that stuff!)

Seriously, you guys are the best fans, and I'd say that even if I weren't begging for your hard earned money.  You don't have to give us a cent for us to love you.  But if you do want to support us, we've now got a way for you to do it.
